Today, I was informed that PEPCO, Mon Power and FirstEnergy were going to join hands and mangle our trees together. Note, PEPCO won't be mangling these particular trees because it's just not true that Potomac Edison is "widely known as PEPCO," at least in this country. I really don't know what they call it in New Delhi. Potomac Edison is known by a lot of creative names in West Virginia, such as Perpetual Estimate, but PEPCO isn't one of them.
Sadly, this story may be accurate about actual events that could occur, "once all the errors are removed."
Potomac Edison To Adjoin Hands Together With Mon Power and First Energy Corp. (NYSE:FE) For Tree Trimming Program
Boston, MA 04/29/2014 (wallstreetpr) - Potomac Edison or widely known as PEPCO is one of the well known names in the field of electricity power supply, in the Washington DC area. According to a recently published report, Potomac Edison along with First Energy Corp. (NYSE:FE) And Mon Power has recently received an authorization from Public Service Commission (PSC) of Virginia for a new tree trimming program. This program will help in reducing the power outages due to various storms in the West Virginia area.
This tree trimming program will initially continue for a period of five years. Under this program, the tree trimming will be placed along with right-of-way vegetation for next five years. Once the initial set up is evaluated, and all the errors are removed then there are possibilities that the duration will be shorten to four years. Both First Energy Corp. (NYSE:FE) and Mon Power will focus on rural areas in which all the trees will be trimmed near distribution lines and transmission lines for the betterment of service reliability.
In a press conference the CEO and Head of First Energy Corp. (NYSE:FE)’s West Virginia Operations Holly Kauffman said,” Electricity is necessary for day to day life, and we know that extended outages due to major storms can be really difficult for our customers.” The company is trying to focus on tree trimming, transmission network, and distribution that will decrease the chances of electricity outages due to major storms and bed weather and concentrate on improved life style and overall service quality.
Though there can be several other factors which can cause electricity outage. These factors keep changing, and it is not possible for management to predict all the factors, thus a team of expert keep an eye over any such probability, so that if any such factor comes into the picture, it can be eliminated with immediate effect.
